Tiger Woods’ disastrous 2017 just got even worse. Woods was arrested for driving under the influence early Monday morning, as first reported by WPTV.com.
Woods was taken into custody in Jupiter, Fla., where the 14-time major champ lives. According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office website, Woods was booked at 7:18 a.m. Monday morning and released from custody at 10:50 a.m.
In 2009, a Thanksgiving night car crash set off a highly publicised sex scandal for the then World No. 1. Now, his reputation will also be tarnished by a driving incident on Memorial Day.
Woods is currently sidelined for the rest of the golf season after undergoing a fourth back surgery in April. He last played in Dubai in early February, withdrawing from the Desert Classic before the second round after opening with a disappointing 77 on the Majlis.
